virginia between manchin and racy now putting in the lead with a three point advantage that took a lot by surprise. joining me with his analysis frank luntz. russ fine geld in wisconsin. before -- russ feingold in wisconsin. before we get to that, we just had christine o'donnell on. it is interesting. i think sarah palin is right, the media want to destroy her, slander her. they are not doing the same to her opponent. when get as opportunity to speak what is your reaction? >> she is well tested, well measured speaker. sean you and i had a conversation and i also had some doubt back last tuesday. after listening to this interview that doubt is gone away. she articulate. she knows the issues. she focused locally on delaware. she not running a anything wide campaign she running a delaware-centered campaign. if i had the dials on now these independent speak voters, would like what she says. smaller government, less taxes, less regulation, more focus on what is going on in the state and less of all that washington stuff that the public in general and delaware in particular has turned agains
is not the time to hike taxes on anyone. a week later, we had virginia senator webb joining the chorus and on the 13th, more determines circulated a letter in the house of representatives demanding the same. and two days later, 31 more democrats joining that band wagon. and then new jersey congress plan saying they do not go far enough. the more they piled on, the more the dow gained and to date, 7 percent for the month. the tax tush -- tax turn around on the democrats was not what was causing it. now what? >>guest: there is a real relationship in your chart. as you know, the capital gains tax is highly related to stock values. if you raise the capital gains tax, stocks go down and if you cut the values go up. remember what happened in may of 2003 when president bush signed the cut, we had a bounce in the market. there is something to the chart. the more democrats say, we should extend the tax cuts for everyone, that is good for markets. >>neil: the argument is you buy on the rumor and you sell on the fact but what if the fact does not happen? what if this cut in taxes they are looking
are connecticut, west virginia, california and nevada. okay? and if you pull delaware out of the equation, that means republicans have to win two of those four that i identified, west virginia, connecticut, nevada and california. they are frankly all a tad uphill in one form or another. >> i just gave them to you in circles. >> i agree. >> they can get there. it's just a little bit harder if you pull delaware out of the equation. >> i'll tell you a fact we're not including. so many progressives i know are despondent. they don't think barack obama has been perfect. i think they are setting way too high a standard. that is my view. their view is he's not reaching their goals. that will be a question how that turnout occurs f only the red-hot right votes, look out everybody. that includes boxer that includes patty murly, that includes the governor of west virginia. they could all go if only people voting are the red-hot right and everybody else states home or goes to the movies or sits home in the rain. >>> coming up, no country for old republicans. we are already working that side of the ba

for the "hardball" scoreboa scoreboard. we begin tonight in west virginia and it's shocking number. popular governor joe mansion, a democrat, now trailing in the race for senate republican, john raese. even though most voters in west virginia approve, a majority say they want republicans controlling congress. now to wisconsin where the news isn't good for senator russ feingold. the ppp shows feingold trailing ron johnson by 11 points. and an update on the big governor's race in california. jerry brown has a five-point lead over meg whitman and she's obviously trying perhaps unsuccessfully to buy that race. muslim bashing right now is one of the themes of the value voters summit this past weekend and newt gingrich leads the way in whipping it in this country. here he is stoking fear in what he calls the threat of sharia law. >> i have no problem with the mosques in new york city that are peaceful and obey american law, but i am opposed to any effort to impose sharia on the united states and we should have -- we should have a federal law that says under no circumstances in any jurisdiction in the unit
dubai to dulles airport in virginia, outside washington, d.c. she's the only hiker released. iran let her go on humanitarian grounds once $500,000 bail was paid. she will address the u.s. media for the first time today at 3:00 in new york at the parker meridian hotel a few blocks away from our world headquarters in midtown manhattan. sarah and her mother will read from prepared remarks. when they're finished, the mother of the two hikers who remain jailed at the prison in tehran will hold a press conference. secretary of state hillary clinton spoke about the whole situation this morning. >> great relief. i was so pleased that this young woman was able to come home. i want the other two young american americans josh and shane to come home as well. as a mother, i met with their mothers and i can't even imagine how painful the experience that they themselves have had inside prison, but then, of course, the pain that their families feel. >> reporter: shourd made a brief statement yesterday and did not make a mention of her 410-day stay inside the iranian prison or the health problems whic
, there will be defined benefits. you could look at north carolina and norfolk south, virginia and csx. there are many other states where we don't have progress. irnl one or both of you want to terry briefly and then get back to my main interest which is captive shipper rates >> they really get lost in all of this. one of the things troubling is the massive use of stock repurchases. i think one would have to look at a balance you say, well, people have a right to reward their share holders. they are encouraged in people to invest. along with that is the whole question of capital shipments. that's really why we are here. i would like to hear from you, a sense of your path to fairness of the captive. shippers come to see me all the time. they come from all over the koirpt country. i'm not a lawyer but i feel like one when i think of all the cases brought before the itc or stb and feeling short changed. they are always up against you can win or loose because you have a system. you sort of discuss the release in some of these papers i am reading but it is a case of timing. the classic technique is to stal
today the president was in northern virginia talking about health care reform which, as you mentioned, the republicans are threatening to repeal. why was he revisiting this topic today when he's been so criticized for initially not focusing on the economy? >> well, katie, he's trying to help democrats who are being just hammered out on the campaign trail on health care reform. so today he highlighted a number of popular provisions of the bill that take effect tomorrow. for example, starting tomorrow insurance companies will be barred from denying coverage to children because of preexisting conditions. insurance companies will also no longer be allowed to put a lifetime limit on the amount of coverage and children will be allowed to stay on their parents' insurance plans until their 26th birthday. katie, when he signed the bill six months ago, approval of health care reform was 37%. after talking about it a lot, it's still at 37%. hasn't gone up a bit. >> couric: all right. chip reid. chip, thank you, nice to have you in new york. and it didn't take long. the insurance industry has alr
troops in afghanistan. virginia, the plan, democrats line. go ahead. caller: i am from new york. shall i speak up? host: go ahead. caller: i think he should turn the page. it should have been turned a long time ago. but i do not think the media will let him because they just keep the war is going. let me say this because i tried so hard to get on to you -- george washington's farewell address. he answered many of the questions facing us. telling us we should be aware -- host: sorry, we will have to let you go. your signal is breaking up. here's more from the president last night. >> we must use all elements of all power, including our diplomacy, economic strength, and the power of america as an example to secure our interests and stand by our allies. and we must reject a vision of the future that is based not just on our fearless but also on our hopes. division that recognizes the real dangers that exist around the world but also the limitless possibilities of our time. today, old adversaries are at peace and emerging democracies are potential partners. new markets for our goods stretch
into the discussion. our question is, is college overrated. the next call comes from virginia. brenda, independent line. you are on the air. i am going to move on to cape cod. bill, republican line. caller: the last two or three callers told my thunder. it could tell us about your own experience. are you a college graduate? caller: no, ma'am. but i was born at the right time. i was board in 1947 and when i got out of high school, i could go to work anywhere as far as having good benefits. the phone company, electric company, gas co., so on and so forth. but those jobs are no longer available because of productivity and technology enhancements. host: and the decline in the manufacturing base, are those kinds of companies still around? caller: i was never in the manufacturing field. i worked for the telephone company and the telephone company now has been replaced by cassell phones. the telephone jobs today are what the railroad jobs in the 1950's when the 707 came in. but that is not why i called. there is nothing wrong being a plumber, electrician, or a skilled finish carpenter. all of those peopl
. virginia, go ahead. caller: hi. i wanted to speak on nancy pelosi in support of her voice for aiding the people. one of the things that i think that has happened is the republicans have controlled the message. however, at the end of the day when it comes time for them to stand forth for the voting, people are going to find out that the republicans are selling a product without instructions. and that is going to be detrimental to them and their message that they've been continuing to churn out. it's a marketing ploy. and it's a very good one at this moment, but i think when if educated population decides to actually tune back in and say let's get on the band wagon they're going to find out that the republicans have been selling poison to the people. host: so you're saying thingless change as we get close to november caller: absolutely. i don't necessarily believe in all polls. i do watch them. but i do believe that there is an issue right now with the people that they're calling. i don't think that every person's household has been called and i think they're targeting certain areas to
to fairfax, virginia, backyard where people expressed concerns about jobs and other economic issues. composed of friendly audiences the events represented middle class so-called real people. >> you're in a bubble. when you are president. and sometimes you just don't have the opportunity to have the kind of interactions that i used to have even when i was a senator. and so, these kind of formats are terrific for me. >> but next monday mr. obama is scheduled to be in a town hall made for tv event at museum in washington and cnbc will televise it and they encourage the alumni club of washington, d.c. to invite members to attend. well-known princeton graduates in washington are first lady michelle obama and supreme court justice sonia sotomayor and elena kagan. alumni alert says, "we are looking to capture the sentiment of the nation ahead of the mid-term elections." at the end the invitation says, "please write a question you would like to ask or have answered by the president." >> was the white house aware they were being invited to attend the event and their questions were prescreened? >> i ho
warnings for all of eastern north carolina and tropical storm warnings from virginia to long island. later today, hurricane warnings will sh issued for cape cod. a look at a powerful storm. you can clearly see the eye of the storm and weaken from here on out but it's already too strong so if it weakens from a 4 to a 3 that can still do a lot of destruction on the outer banks. it's traveling 50 to a hundred miles parallel to the east coast. if this had been 50 miles west of this this on would have been one of the historic and damaging hurricanes ever. it's a little off the coast and still do damage. tomorrow morning, during the morning rush hour into the noon hour, the strongest winds will be virginia beach, maryland, delaware coast up through the jersey shore. by friday afternoon the tropical storm force winds are about from new york city all the way out through long island including connecticut, long island and the cape. the hurricane force winds should arrive on cape cod come tomorrow evening by 9:00 or 10:00. they may even do evacuations on the outer cape maybe from orleans to province
advantage among independents. we saw it in massachusetts, new jersey, virginia. we are seeing it in delaware tonight. once again, like in kentucky, nevada, alaska, we are seeing the establishment being beaten by the tea party movement and by the conservatives that are saying you know what we've had it with rhino republicans. if you are not going to vote against cap and tax we are not putting new office. big message sent. >> i believe in 1994 worked on the contract with america, i watched this swing as it happened. it is happening earlier here. it is happening deeper. the numbers are more strongly pro republican. the challenge now for the gop, you mention today this race in delaware and nevada those are the two i'm watching close live. will the public vote for someone who doesn't have the same experience as traditional politician? >> sean: yes. i'm answering you're as you go. you asked and i'm answering. >> i guess you never her of the word "rhetorical." doesn't have the knowledge of issues. i'm going to be watching. i think we'll be dialing for your show that nevada debate. i hope we go into
, for the east coast of the u.s., from north carolina to the north carolina-virginia border, also, the watch, hurricane watch, now extending from the north carolina-versus border northward to cape henlepin, hope i said that right, i apologize if i haven't, 125 miles per hour sustained winds, a category three storm, moving northwest at 17 miles per hour. we're going to start to feel hurricane-force winds, possibly, along the mid atlantic coast within the next 36 hours. the other piece of information we have here, see this right here? yep, tropical depression number nine, and it will probably become gaton. still watching fiona as well, right on the heels of this storm, earl, hurricane earl. you can see we're starting to see that well defined eye. still a possibility this could become a category four within the next several hours, it still has a lot of warm -- a lot of warm water to travel on. you know what, this is not the latest path, because the winds have not been upgraded yet but we will get that to you. category three storm, as we head through thursday and friday, coming very close to the
the candidates that could possibly challenge the democratic majority. host: all right. virginia. joe, you say, no. why? caller: i am not over all happy with what is going on. the reason why i say that is we -- even with the tea party candidates, the only thing we would do is slow down the change. there has not really been any change. understand,don't that i find quite pertinent, with as much discontent as there is from voters -- voting with former democratic candidates as well as republican candidates, while a third party hasn't developed as in with what ross perot? i'm afraid the tea party candidate would do nothing more than to split the votes, we're in a general election the democrats would come back on top. host: on our 20 page -- twitter page -- that comes from helen. san diego. joanne. you say, yes, you are happy with the tea party-backed candidate. caller: i am thrilled. we have a great slate in california with carly fiorina alabama and meg whitman -- host: what she tea party? caller: i have to confess i have not gone out to one of the events, but i am thrilled that people in our country a
, virginia beach, norfolk area. another tornado warning that includes these cities with this cell that's moving northeast across the newport news through the chesspy. that's in effect for the next 20 minutes as well. no confirmed reports of these tornadoes touching down. radar indicated. there's been a lot of wind in these cells also. williamsburg, one report of a tree down here and -- that fell on top of a car and one person injured there. this is a dangerous situation that we're going to be dealing with for a good 12 to 18 hours more. more rain coming in to wilmington. it wants to push off to the east but having a hard time doing that. we have flash flood warnings and watches from north carolina to the canadian border here for the next 36 to 48 hours. heavy rainfall and in some cases flooding rain. good news is, once we get through this, kyra, it will be a pretty nice weekend. got to get through it first. >> got to get there. thanks, rob. >>> johnson & johnson' ceo william welldon on capitol hill testifying about the company's recall of contaminated medicines. he did not appear when
on to virginia. republican line. good morning. caller: yes. we have where i live at we have three pen ten sharies here and there's over a thousand inmates there. and the state -- the tax people pay i hear anywhere from $16,000 to $25,000 a year. and that's not right for us to pay that kind of money for -- to how's those inmates. host: how many jobs do you think those three produce for that area? caller: very few. host: whether or not do you say that? caller: because it's a low income county and stuff. the only thing that keeps our county going is the coal mines and stuff. host: ok. did you have more to add? caller: i would just like, like i said, $25,000 that taxpayers pay to keep the inmate in jail. and just like i said, they need to get those inmates out and bring our soldiers back home from afghanistan and train those prisoners over there for two or three weeks and send them over there. host: according to the national public radio, in 2006 the it cost about $68 billion for corrections. the average cost per state inmate was $22,000 or about $62 per day among facilities operated by the federal b
in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa
? the probability is no. there are other places, like west virginia and other places, that three weeks ago we never thought was on the radar screen so -- >> a big point everybody around her makes and some republicans who aren't so sure make is, wait a minute, you know, all of the idiots who say she can't win in november are the same idiots who said she couldn't win last night. >> right. >> first, i find it interesting that michael steele is making so much sense and he's now going against the same establishment that never liked him. and so what, now tea partiers are going to rally around steele? so, this is -- what's so intriguing about this whole deal is it sort of reminds me of democrats and alvin greene in south carolina. it's like, where did this person even come from? what is going on here? >> well, you know, they know where she came from because they spent a lot of money trying to defeat her. today, after telling all of us we're not going to give her a dime, suddenly today, right, they gave her $42,000, which is the max they're aloud. i talked to a senior republican strategist who's doing a lo
there. and then there's the very red state of west virginia. democrats of course have a very, very popular governor running in joe manshun. will they put the money in that they need to win those races. one other thing republicans have to worry about, let's take a look at our map here where the democrats are targeting a few of these republican seats. there are five here that are sitting here. and of course three of them are still seats that democrats are trying to win. you've got missouri. they're spending real money there. they really think robin carnahan can beat, we'll see, not quite sure but it is a red state but it is a red state that robin carnahan very popular, raised a ton of money. kentucky, the first tea party victory was rand paul. democrats still believe that he is too weak to win that seat. we shall see. he's been leading in all the polls. jack conway has yet to be able to take a lead there. the third seat that's sort of sitting there ends up being florida. we're going to close there. take a look at this, what charlie crist said yesterday. he's now the independent, that
a lot, gop leadership types went to a lumber company in virginia. they wore un-washington clothes and spoke from a podium sandwiched between piles of wood. the anti-washington tone was struck about 30 miles from the nation's capital. the picture was different, but the concept's familiar. the 21-page pledge includes calls for repealing and replacing health care reform. and making the bush tax cuts permanent for everyone. it would also freeze the hiring of federal employees in non-security jobs and roll back spending to 2008 levels, before the stimulus bill, before the bank bailout. the pledge was largely free of pronouncements on the social issues, the kind of talk that tends to scare off independent voters, and there was little about what republicans would do about popular but unsustainable entitlement programs like social security and medicare, no mention of earmarks either. marshala blackburn and kathy morris-rogers next. >>> joining me now, republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee and cathy mcmorris rodgers of washington state. thank you both so much for coming. i
who run the mine in west virginia where 29 miners were injured andc% managed to get set up with the nonsensical uneducated hatred pushed by flip tea party types and called b.s. on it. the first karl rove wigging out over the lump of dumb and judgmental christine o'donnell. but now al de a m amato. >> most of these guys working in the post office should be driving cabs and i think we should stop importing labor from nigeria and ethiopia. that's about the skill level. that's why i allege they should be bumped down to driving cabs and stop importing labor to drive cabs. >> you are a nasty -- you are a nasty racist. when you begin to -- i'm going to just make my observation. i have a right to do it. you brought in the fact a bunch of nigerians. let me just tell you that's a bunch of bull [ bleep ] and you should be ashamed of yourself and have your mouth washed out. what the hell are you talking about? it's one thing to say they're out -- wait a minute -- shut up. i listened to your racist bull [ bleep ]. it's one thing to say that they're hiring people who are unskilled, that
, meg whitman, carly fiorina, kelly ayotte in new hampshire, bob mcdonnell in virginia, chris christi in new jersey, all these new candidates have one thing in common. they're outsiders. they're fresh faces and they don't want to grow washington's economy, they want to grow america's economy. they want to stop taking money out of the american people's economy and sending it to washington. >> let me make something clear. >> the tea party is the easiest part to focus on because it's got the brightest feathers and most colorful, but it's much bigger than that. that's why republicans are probably going to gain something like 52, 53 seats. >> i could not agree with you more. >> a americans about keynesianism being dead, they're voting on it this election. >> i could not agree with you more about growing private sebl sector job creation, what i'm saying is policiesing coming out of the tea party are disasoes tive. if you sit down with meg whitman, business leader who's have grown business, run business, they will tell you what the tea party and ron paul are talking about is contrary to good
from virginia, theresa lewis has been executed. she died by lethal injection. the 41-year-old grandmother was convicted of plotting the 2002 killings of her husband and stepson. asked if she had any last words, lewis said, quote, i just want kathy to know i love her and i'm sorry, referring to kathy cliffton, the daughter of one victim, and the sister of another. her lawyers argue that lewis borderline i.q. allowed her to be manipulated by her co-defendant. >>> today at the u.n., president obama told the general assembly now is the time for israelis and palestinians to work toward a future that includes a palestinian homeland and a secure israel. the president also says the door remains open for talks with iran. however, iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad suggested the u.s. was somehow involved in the 9/11 attacks, prompting delegates from the u.s. and several allies to walk out. >>> a $42 billion bill aimed at helping small businesses cleared the house today with the support of just one republican. the senate passed its version a week ago with two republicans backing i
established candidate. scored seven establishment. [ inaudible ] virginia governmeor is also pushing for action. >> we have to get people who believe in the conservative, pro-family limited government, federalism ideas out in november. >> now islam has been a big topic this morning. generating controversy. they have been talking about the proposed mosque near ground zero site. also 9/11. bill bennett host of "morning in america" had this to say, talk about the terrorist act in the name of islam and he said, "we're not islamaphobes but we're angry at islam." back to you. >> thank you for the update. voters in hawaii head to the poll to decide which democrat will try to take back republican seat from republican hands after eight years. two long-time political rivals will square off. former congressman neil abercrombie and the honolulu mayor went head-to-head in a primary 24 years ago. the race is full of mud slinging over race, religion and gay rights. alaska senator lisa murkowski is back in the race this time as a write-in after losing in the primary to tea party backed joe miller. s
a lot to actually gallon virginia nice the left. in fact yesterday at a chamber luncheon in anchorage, berkowitz reached out and endorsed her. the folk that are coming around here are not perceived as conservative, but they have policies of the past rather than recognizing the situation we are in right now. jenna: let's talk a little bit about the two party system. you've called yourself a constitutional conservative. do you believe the way the government is running right now with the two party system is the way that the founders intended it to run or is this country at a political crossroads today. >> it's at a political crossroads in the sense that this nation as a whole, not only here in ask but in many other states week nicest that we cannot go forward with the system we have in great, growing government, growing fiscal debts that are making the country financially. and it is time for one of the parties, and i think that is best placed in the republican party to catch that understanding and put into effect a system that reverses the growth of government. it's an opportunity to skh
the elections? virginia write, depends on how smart or stupid people are. if they're smart, the increase in poverty levels will create a corresponding increase of votes for the democrats. why anyone poor would vote republican is beyond me. missy writes it doesn't matter if democrats are at fault or not, they're the party in power. the nation looks to them for solutions. when they fail to address the very real problems this country has they deserve all the blame that is heaped upon them. joe writes, hard to say how it will affect the elections. it does indicate how effective the emfa service preventing the transfer of wealth from the rich to the poor has been. the rich are assuccumulating al the wealth. mike writes, the only group people can turn to if they are fed up with the status quo is the tea party. it's very possible people are voting for the tea party candidates simply out of frustration, not knowing what the group really stands for. she writes from arizona, it will probably be bad for the democrats as there are so many voters out there with short-term memory loss who don't rememb
in virginia closing three years after the fed starts moving to phase out light bulbs, ordering government buildings to use fluorescent bulbs to save energy. my next guest thinks that the plan backfired and people are going to lose their jobs from this factory. it's congressman joe barton. this caught our eye. it encapsulate as number of issues out there right now. why are you fighting to save the indan des -- incandescent light bulb? >> they're cheaper, environmentally correct and we think consumers ought to make the correct choice, especially middle and low income americans, they can't afford four, $5 light bulbs when you can get the old fashioned light bulb for 40, 50 cents a pop. martha: but part of the action is to say that the government won't purchase incandescent light bulbs nip. it doesn't mean the rest of us can't. >> it also says it can't be sold as retail in the united states. martha: they can't be sold anywhere after -- when is this going to go into effect? >> 2014. so we want to repeal it. this is indicative of the overreach that the obama administration, mrs. pelosi and majo
